Enhancing EU security & resilience via energy efficiency: 2023 in review

The EU-ASE 2023 Activity Report delves into the advocacy and outreach efforts of the European Alliance to Save Energy, aimed at enhancing energy efficiency in the EU’s energy policies and integrating the water-energy nexus into mainstream considerations.

2023 can be viewed as a continuation of the previous one, marked by escalating geopolitical issues and an energy crisis. Throughout the year, EU-ASE actively implemented its workplan by significantly contributing to energy efficiency debates and participating in ongoing negotiations on legislative dossiers. 

We also organized the second edition of the European Energy Efficiency Day, bringing together high-profile speakers who contributed to discussions on energy efficiency in buildings, industrial ecosystems, and the electricity market. The event also delved into the skills agenda within the sector.

We continued our work on the implementation of a work programme which was structured around the main objectives of:

  • Boosting energy efficiency through EU policy and regulatory framework
  • Unleashing the energy savings potential of water efficiency in EU legislation
  • Smart, digital, and effective communication to achieve advocacy objectives

IEA’s Energy Efficiency 2023 Report Seminar (EU-ASE & IEA event)

On Thursday, 14 December 2023, the European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE) alongside the International Energy Agency (IEA) hosted an event presenting the IEA’s Energy Efficiency 2023 report. 

Energy Efficiency 2023 serves as the IEA’s primary annual analysis on global developments in energy efficiency markets and policy. The report explores recent trends in energy intensity, demand, and efficiency-related investment, encompassing policy and technology aspects.

This is the tenth edition, and it includes new highlights, mostly focusing on key issues facing policymakers. Notably, the report outlines the proposed global target to double energy efficiency progress and articulates the potential gains from achieving this target.

Amidst the ongoing energy and climate crises, 2023’s global energy efficiency progress, as measured by primary energy intensity, is expected to be slightly below the long-term trend, signaling a slowdown from 2022. Despite this, the report highlights a deep transformation in energy efficiency and clean energy. Governments globally are introducing or reinforcing policies and energy-saving programs, leading to the faster deployment of efficient technologies. These efforts contribute to the expected peaking of fossil fuel demand in the coming years.

EU-ASE at European Green Deal Seminar

On Tuesday 21 November 2023, EU-ASE President Monica Frassoni will speak at a seminar hosted by ODE and COGEN Vlaanderen titled: “EU Green Deal”. Register here to attend!

The Green Deal is the European Commission’s first European climate plan to transform the European Union into a climate-neutral and sustainable continent by 2050. The Green Deal includes several measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For example, work is being done to promote renewable energy, improve energy efficiency in buildings and promote sustainable mobility.

What does that mean for us, this early warning about what is coming our way from the EU and outlines a framework for the next 5 to 10 years? Is the FIT for 55 package a quietly rising sea level coming our way or a tsunami?

ODE (The Sustainable Energy Organization) and COGEN Vlaanderen present to you the final revisions of this European legislation and its impact on the various technologies. EU-ASE President Monica Frassoni will give a presentation about the broad aspects of the new Energy Efficiency Directive (EED).

EU-ASE at Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED)

On Tuesday 10 October, EU-ASE President Monica Frassoni spoke at Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED), motivating implementing bodies in their efforts to put in place robust policies & measures in order to deliver on the energy efficiency targets.

 To support discussion on the implementation of the directive, EU-ASE President Monica Frassoni was invited to provide a key note address at the opening session of the next plenary meeting of the Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED).

The CA EED is one of the major tools in the energy efficiency toolbox for Member State policy makers and implementors. It supports policy makers, implementors and public authorities to deliver on energy efficiency, it contributes to the understanding and sharing of good practices, energy saving measurement methodologies and helps resolve EED implementation issues. The CA provides an informal platform where policy makers and implementors can share, discuss and create. It has been doing this for just under fifteen years and aims to continue to provide support into the new EED era.

This meeting aims to help Member State EED implementing bodies to get a better understanding of the more technical aspects of the recast, it will be the first opportunity the more technical implementors will be provided with to bring more clarity and understanding.

Monica’s role was to inspire the audience and motivate them in their efforts to put in place robust policies and measures in order to deliver on the energy efficiency targets, which for many will be challenging.
